A Focus on Wellness

This March, MSAA hosted a number of online activities with a focus on wellness through The Mind, Body, and MS Connection campaign. Each online activity highlighted emotional, mental, or physical health concerns of the MS community.

This is a significantly stressful and anxious time for everyone, and that can make it difficult to focus on wellness. As MS Awareness Month comes to a close, we encourage you to join us for another online activity this month – “Keeping it Simple: Everyday Mindfulness for People Living with Multiple Sclerosis.”

Presented by Marriage and Family Therapist Cheryl Young, this live webinar will explore mindfulness and ways to bring balance and calm into your life. You can learn some practical coping skills to better manage life’s stressors and help decrease your anxiety, depression, and any fear you might be feeling. Join us for this relevant and timely live webinar on Tuesday, March 24, 2020 from 7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern by registering here.
